i see you like the some of the cartoons.
They might get it but they won't act on it. They'll rather take to the grave than lose face...I know a few people that just have nothing but negativity for the iPad and have never used it. I just say use it and you'll understand. They read things written by people that haven't used it and think it's crap, then when they are told how great it is they say you're a fanboy...they obviously have their mind made up.
In 3 years when 75% of net books are replaced with iPads (ahem iPhone) maybe they will get it.
Here, here!The common theme is related Steve Jobs to Moses. That could be a positive or negative in that Moses did bring his people out of slavery. However, the idea that a tablet is going to replace books is foolish. It may replace some books that need replacing, like textbooks. Good literature is going to still be sought after for more than just the story. The most likely to suffer would be the paperbacks. They have a short life span as is. I know I have started replacing a few of my paperbacks with hardbacks because the paperbacks are deteriorating.
Steve Jobs is a brilliant technology prophet. That does not make him a religeous figure except to a deluded few. Technology has a tendency to make us nostalgic for the simple past. Except the past was never as idealic as we remember.
